Apple TV app now globally available on latest Google Chromecast device

Apple TV app now globally available on latest Google Chromecast device




TV app is now globally available on the new device. The new app will allow users to watch original TV+ content, as well as access existing iTunes movie and television show purchases.


As per Variety, starting Thursday, users with the USD 50 Chromecast with Google TV adapter will be able to access TV.



In addition, the app is available on smart TVs from Sony and TCL that have the Google TV interface and Google said that it will roll out to more Android TV-powered devices in the next few months.


The deal between the two tech giants, which compete on multiple fronts, was announced back in December.


The app provides access to all the Plus content. Regularly priced at USD 4.99 per month, the subscription VOD package is available to buyers of Apple devices for a free one-year period (an offer Apple has extended through this July).


The Apple TV Plus lineup of original shows, movies, and documentaries includes series like ‘Ted Lasso’, ‘For All Mankind’, ‘The Morning Show’ and ‘Servant’, as well as movies like ‘Greyhound’ starring Tom Hanks and ‘Palmer’ featuring Justin Timberlake.


Apple TV also lets users buy or rent more than 100,000 movies and shows from iTunes and access titles that people have previously purchased from Apple. Users also can subscribe to channels including Showtime, Starz, AMC Plus, and CBS All Access.


To access the Apple TV app on the Chromecast with Google TV, users can navigate to the ‘Apps’ tab or the apps row in the ‘For you’ tab.


In the U.S., Google TV users can browse Apple TV Plus originals in personalised recommendations and search results. Using Google Assistant, users can open the Apple TV application or play an Apple original title by speaking a command.


The newest Chromecast, which first started shipping in the U.S. last September, supports hundreds of apps, including those for Netflix, Disney Plus (and Disney Plus Hotstar), Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, NBCUniversal’s Peacock, YouTube TV, Showtime, Starz, Discovery Plus, Tubi and Pluto TV.

Delta police respond to ‘suspicious device’

‘There is not believed to be any risk to the public,’ police say


Police say there is no risk to the public after receiving a call about a “suspicious device” found in an industrial area in Delta Monday afternoon.

Police were called to the area of Vantage Way and 80th Street in Tilbury on Feb. 16 for a report of a suspicious device.

The RCMP’s explosives disposal unit was called in, and based on their assessment, “There is not believed to be any risk to the public,” DPD public affairs manager Cris Leykauf said.

The RCMP EDU has since seized the device, and police have released the scene.

Traffic in the area is expected to return to normal soon.

Bangladesh Army denies procuring Mobile Interceptor Device from Israel – TheAsiaLive

Bangladesh Army denies procuring Mobile Interceptor Device from Israel – TheAsiaLive


DHAKA, Bangladesh

Bangladesh Army on Tuesday denied procuring a Mobile Interceptor Device from Israel, as shown in an Al-Jazeera documentary “All the Prime Minister’s Men.”

“Bangladesh Army denounces the false information provided in the report with respect to procurement of the Mobile Interceptor Device from Israel. The truth is the equipment was procured from Hungary for one of the Army Contingents due to be deployed in the UN Peacekeeping Mission,” said a rejoinder issued by the Inter Services Public Relations on Tuesday.

Bangladesh Army headquarters said it condemned in the strongest possible words the concocted and ill intended report by a vested group in the news channel Al-Jazeera titled ‘All the Prime Minister’s Men’ aired on February 2.

“Nowhere in the equipment was mentioned/written that these were of Israeli origin. There is no scope of defence co-operation/procurement from Israel since Bangladesh does not have any formal diplomatic relation with the country,” it further said.

“This, in fact, is a sequel by the same vested group which has been attempting to destabilize the country in recent times. The commentators of the report are Mr David Bergman, a convict of International Crimes Tribunal, Mr Zulkarnain Saer Khan [featured as Sami in the report], an ex-cadet expelled from Bangladesh Military Academy on charges of drug addiction, and Mr Tasneem Khalil, the chief editor of infamous Netra News. The nexus among the ill-motivated and vested personalities is clearly visible in their past credentials,” it said.

The ISPR rejoinder continued: “It is not clear how an international news channel like Al-Jazeera can associate itself with such an ill-intentioned group of people with criminal records. The video is prepared putting together clips of different official, social and private events using technology. Several disconnected events are edited together giving voices in the background.”

Bangladesh Army said it viewed the report as an attempt by the vested group to break the harmony among different government organs with a view to obstructing the growth and development of the country. “Bangladesh Army is the most disciplined under the present Chain of Command and loyal to the constitution and the Government. Bangladesh Army had always been and will remain respectful to the Government of Bangladesh and contribute in the nation building efforts of our beloved motherland.”

Shell Singapore And D’Crypt Pilot Singapore’s First Contact Tracing Device Use In Live Process Plant Environment – IAA

Shell Singapore And D’Crypt Pilot Singapore’s First Contact Tracing Device Use In Live Process Plant Environment – IAA


D’Crypt, a Temasek-owned security engineering company, has embarked on a pilot project with Shell Singapore, to deploy specially modified BluePass devices for COVID-19 contact tracing for its employees, contractor workers and other visitors at Pulau Bukom.

As current versions of the contact tracing device are not certified intrinsically safe for use in environments where flammable gases may be present, this is the first time that a modified version will be tested in a live process plant environment. If successful, this pilot could pave the way for the modified devices’ use across the process industry in Singapore and abroad. A total of 4,000 pieces of these modified devices, named BluePass, will be distributed for this pilot which is expected to run until March. There are 60,300 workers involved in the petroleum, chemical & pharmaceutical products sector in Singapore as of Q3 2020, according to the Ministry of Manpower’s labour market report.

D’Crypt’s BluePass is a small and light wearable contact tracing device that exchanges proximity information with other BluePasses or interoperable devices via Bluetooth Low Energy technology, and stores that information for a stipulated period for contact tracing purposes. BluePass safeguards user privacy by not tracking location information.

Shell has evaluated the modified BluePass devices for their safe use at the process areas in the manufacturing site at Pulau Bukom using IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standards commonly referenced by process industry companies worldwide, as well as guidance from EEMUA (Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association) and EI (Energy Institute).

Shell applies these standards for any equipment used in their facilities since there may potentially be flammable gases present. The evaluations included the ruggedness of the body of the modified BluePass device, protection from user tampering or maltreatment, the power source and size of the battery, as well as the energy level transmitted during use.

Hugues Bourgogne, Shell’s Vice President for Manufacturing in Singapore & Philippines and General Manager of Bukom, said: “Currently the contact tracing of individuals within the process areas can take hours, which slows down the process of identifying and isolating close contacts. The enablement of prompt contact tracing for process industry workers in Singapore will substantially mitigate the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak in the community. Through this pilot of the modified BluePass devices, we are glad that Shell Singapore can play a role in enabling Singapore’s economic activities to ramp up while keeping our workers safe from COVID-19.”

Once the pilot is completed, D’Crypt and Shell will proactively share results – both in terms of effective contact tracing and BluePass’ suitability for use in live process plant environments − with the process industry in Singapore.

“We hope this will contribute to a broad adoption of contact tracing devices in the process sector, dramatically improving Singapore and the world’s COVID-19 security.” said Dr Ng.
